      I remember being invited up to the Lake of the Woods for some Walleye fishing with my avid fishing friends. Total beginner’s luck, but I caught and released 2 muskies that weekend. Avid fishermen didn’t even have a Muskie bite. Boy, that is a fish you know is on the line!

    Wastewater Superintendent for a municipality in East Texas. When I'm not making sacrifices to the Gods of Fire, I'm a full time Dad to 5 kids, four boys and a beautiful little princess. They keep me busy running around from baseball, football, gymnastics, girl scouts, hunting trips, fishing trips, and the oldest keeps us pretty busy with the rodeo circuit. He just turned 17 and is about to earn his pro card for team roping.

    I work for LESS (Landscape Equipment Super Store) of Tampabay.,located in Clearwater Fl. I am a saw chain specialist, servicing landscapers, tree services, fire rescue, and municipalities. For 30+ years I have sharpened saw chain, and also make chain loops. I have a 99% satisfaction rating. I am very proud of this. I also train people the proper methods of inspecting and sharpening chains. For fun I love to modify grills and smokers for people. Also participate in cook-offs, and BBQing for special events.

      When I'm not finding new and interesting ways to drive my neighbors crazy with the smell of
      wonderful wood smoke, I am an astronomer working at the California Institute of Technology. I oversee data processing for NASA's NEOWISE mission that is constantly mapping the sky in infrared light to detect and measure the sizes of asteroids and comets that might pose a hazard to the Earth.

      I've had a life-long attraction to cooking inherited from my Italian mother. Worked through college as a chef in San Diego. Hung up the toque when I went to graduate school, but never stopped grilling and smoking. I've been known to dig more than a few divots on the golf course, and can be found swing dancing with my wife at the drop of a hat.

      First I worked at Six Flags (TX) for 11 years... ride operator, steam train engineer, rides supervisor, security supervisor, and fire prevention/safety specialist. During that time, I worked for the Midas Rex company (Surgeons here will recognize it) when it was s small family owned unit, before it was acquired by Medtronic. I worked for the "institute" side of the company, doing logistics for 3 day courses we would do for hospitals who bought the system. It was fun, but ultimately wasn't for me. I didn't do my best, and they didn't make me feel welcome or give me any real guidance on how to do the job. Also, for a period of about 5 years I was a mobile DJ, which was a lot of fun, but ultimately wasn't lucrative enough to justify the time and cost.

      After Six Flags, I joined the emergency services industry. I've been working for a north texas fire department as a fire dispatcher, supervisor, hiring team leader, and now a QA/QI analyst. I'm 16 months away from retirement eligibility at which time I will definitely retire, but not quit working. Just somewhere closer to home (I have a 60-90 minute drive each way, depending on traffic) and something with less stress and responsibility. Just something brainless I can do to pay for my hobbies, which are:

      -Subbuteo (tabletop soccer game, not foosball) if this interests anyone, please let me know. There is a wide but not large community in the US, and I can point you to someone near you if you might be interested.
      -Other tabletop and video games. I was right there for the birth of home computers/home video game consoles (we had both an --Atari and a Commodore 64 when I was a kid) and games have always been a big part of my life. Just because I grow old doesn't mean I plan to grow up.
      -Flying my quads (drones)
      -Canoeing, backpacking, camping
      -Just starting to get in to BBQing
      -My retirement gift to myself will be guitar lessons and if I stick with it, a Gibson Les Paul tobacco burst or bourbon burst.

        I don't fly my quads above tree line. They're too small and light to deal with high winds. I'm not into the big ones that can fly miles, though they'd be fun... they're just too expensive and I'm not skilled enough to be given that responsibility.

          At Home I use my Home Made Offset; (pictured) formally a water tank with a fabricated firebox made from rolled 1/4 in steel into a 22 x 18" cylinder, mounted on a 1926 Chevy axle and diamond plate deck. It leaks a bit till it warms up and regulating the temp was a challenge at times, but practice makes perfect ... a labor of love indeed!

          At the Camper (seasonal);
          Weber Kettle w/SnS
          Weber Smoky Mountain w/Cajun Bandit Door

          Accessories -
          Maverick ET733 dual thermometer
          Weber Rapid Fire charcoal starter
          Horse Blanket to cover the offset when the temps drop. Fits like a glove!

          Fuel -
          Apple, Cherry, Oak or Hickory started by Kings-ford Briquettes

          Favorite Beverage -
          Craft IPA's - Victory Hop Devil!! Stones Enjoy By, etc ...

          Tunes -
          Hard Core Blues, Southern Rock, 70's Rock.

        What a cool thread!
        28 years as a tractor trailer pilot, now for the last 12, running the safety department for a mid sized bulk transport company based in PA.
        Hobbies are grand kids, camping, my guns, hunting and fishing, playing my bass guitar, being the best husband and father I can be, and it goes without saying, I love BBQ! I have been following Meathead since before his site required a subscription. I don't mind at all paying for this because this site is so full of good stuff and knowledgeable people that are eager to answer questions, as well as all of the members who don't mind sharing their failures as well as successes. This helps us all!
        Thanks to Meathead and his team, you make this easy

        Wow. what a great thread!! As for me, raised in rural NorCal (aka The Great State of Jefferson) and started working summer jobs at the ripe old age of 12 greasing and fueling heavy equipment for my Dad. Did a lot of ranching and farming, then went into residential construction. The Local Fire Chief asked me to join the volunteer department and it was then that I new what I wanted to be when I grew up. I spent the next 15 years with the City of Ukiah FD, then 10 years with CALFIRE (CA Dept of Forestry). I retired from the fire service 3 years ago and reactivated my building contractor's license to make some fun money. I can't understand why, but construction work is way harder than it used to be and definitely not "fun". Currently exploring becoming a Safety Officer for a friend's confined space rescue company, which should be much easier work. Like construction used to be. I like to say that I have been a cowboy, then a fireman, and next either an astronaut or fighter pilot. Still haven't grown up and will resist that wasteful effort until the end!

        Hobbies are flyfishing, shooting, all kinds of cooking, and puttering around my workshop.

          Spent 27 years as an air traffic controller. Retired two years ago from Philly tower/tracon. (we're forced out at 56) Played guitar most of my adult life in and out of bands. Been seriously woodworking for the past 3 years, it's my regular thing now. My brother and I talk a lot about starting a brew pub locally, I like brewing beer too.

            I just sold my house in the country..135 miles due West of Chi....There we raised honey bees, grew many different kinds of chiles, hunted and fished. Prior to that I had a 30' sailboat on Lake Michigan. Since those are done, I am looking for a totally new adventure. I don't know what it will be but it will be an adventure...

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

          the good one grill

          The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
